Do you just need both machines to be able to get to the internet, or do you want them to share files with each other?
If you just want them both on the internet then you'll need a wireless Router, which the 502T is not. There are plenty you can buy for $30-$40 and then you can just plug it in to one of the ethernet ports inside your network. Should be a simple plug it in and go kind of setup.
